Starting XI: Sundowns v Arrows

Absa Premiership

Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Golden Arrows

Date: 07 May 2018

Venue: Loftus Versfeld Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns have an opportunity to take pole position in the Absa Premiership title race when they face Golden Arrows at Loftus Versfeld on Tuesday evening.
 
 
The match gets underway at 19h30.
 
After Orlando Pirates slipped up in a 2-2 draw with Cape Town City on Saturday, the title race is now in the Brazilians' hands as a win in their game in hand tonight will take them two points above the Soweto giants to the top of the table with one more match to play.
 
It is an ideal opportunity for Pitso Mosimane's side to quickly get over the heartache of their CAF Champions League semi-final 2-1 aggregate loss to Wydad Casablanca on Saturday.
 
Meanwhile, Arrows are unbeaten in their last five Absa Premiership games and are coming off the back of a 2-1 victory over Free State Stars in their last encounter. If Abafana Bes'thende win they will move in to eighth position on the log.
 
The reverse fixture between these two sides saw Sundowns emerge 1-0 winners, courtesy of a Lebohang Maboe strike on the stroke of halftime.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Sundowns:  14Onyango, 4. Langerman, 27. Morena, 6. Arendse, 3. Nascimento, 8. Kekana, 18. Zwane, 40. Coetzee, 11. Vilakazi, 26. Sirino, 33. Maboe.
 
Subs: 31Pieterse, 23. Lakay, 13. Mabunda, 6. Ngcongca, 34. Mahlambi, 22. Brockie, 29. Soumahoro
 
Arrows: 1. Mbaeva, 29. Sibisi, 28. Bilankulu, 5. Mzava, 13. Lunga, 7. Matloga, 26. Phiri, 4. Venter, 25. Motebejane, 40. Mathenjwa, 18. Mutizwa.
